I understand that disappointment is the result of unmet expectations. As such, when I’m disappointed I like to re-examine my expectations to make sure they were realistic in the first place. That way, I can avoid similar disappointment in the future. Sometimes I expect too much of people, but sometimes people just aren’t cool at all. As my good friend Kristina put it; “Fuck me once, shame on me. Fuck me twice… oh wait.”
Nevermind. I’ll leave it at that.
The headaches I had anticipated having from my new contacts were actually worse than I had anticipated; I wore them from 2pm to about 8pm before they became unbearable and I had to take them out. The optician guy did warn that I should ease into it. It sure is exciting to see without glasses; I was reading every sign on the bus like a first-grader who just learned how to read.
In a superhuman effort to not be in a bad mood today, I share this video. It’s impossible to be bummed when raccoons are so awesome.
